[ Mod -> Update ] - News related to Top Story: Fan Made Fallout Fails

DarkUnderlords pet project for many years has just been canceled. You may remember the demo from some months ago and how it was horrible. DU writes a huge rant about what went wrong and why the project is a failure.

Epilogue

Fan Made Fallout is dead. It won't be happening. The people who've been working on it mostly don't give two shits about it anymore... or they do but it always comes back to time. So then what did we do? What did we accomplish in all this time? Sadly, very little. We planned a lot. We've got a wiki full of "Great Ideas™" including a plot that involves the option to blow up your own vault (or not care and leave it to blow up). We had factions the player could side with, determining the outcome of the game. A trial where you could defend yourself and call witnesses. Drugs, including a trippy experience. Lots of great ideas. All of them.

... but we barely scrounged a completed dialogue together and made the script for it. We struggled to actually make a quest. We did finish most of the maps.

So here it all is. We're laying FMF bare for the world to see. To point and laugh and perhaps to wonder at what could have been. All of our secret hidden forums have been made public for you to read. Feel free to go through and see how many motivational posts you can find. See if you can count the unanswered "Can someone read this please?" requests. Our DevWiki has been opened for you to peruse. See how some ideas seem to eerily match things that are present in Fallout 3...

Don't go chasing waterfalls.

If you read his rant he talks about how great the Arcanum toolset was, I don't know why he didn't make a good mod for that.

I think it might be a cause for his breakdown and rage. FMF being canceled and him working on that essay had his emotions in chaos so he unleashed them on us.

You never know what is going on in the fragile minds of the emotionally unstable. This is why we must learn to forgive, or at least withhold our emotions until the time is right to stri...

No...

Just forgive.

Saw this a mile away once I figured out DU was leading the project. That dude's a total loser, I doubt he even has the self confidence to put his pants on without having some lacky praise him for how well he does it. Little prick can't take any sort of criticism, as soon as people told him how many problems were with it he just threw his hands up and yelled "Fuck it, I'm done because I can't do it." What a little bitch.

So it wasn't even near completion. They could've set the release date to October 23rd, 2077.



edit: Also, told you so.

What about it? I was planning on getting rid of it but now I think I'll keep it.

I actually posted in their forum a month or two ago asking if the mod was now canceled because there was no updates to the demo be talked about or released after the first three. They quickly deleted the comment and called me a troll.
